My spam filter seems to be a binge eater

OK people, I get it.  Nobody is happy about the over-zealous spam filter here at treppenwitz. 

I didn't change any settings... it was the folks at TypePad and they aren't being very helpful with a solution.  If it makes you feel any better, I have also had trouble posting a few comments here.

Anyway, I do have a solution (albeit an inelegant one):

If you try to post a comment and get the page asking you to enter an odd combination of letters... just do it.  If at that point it tells you that you've been identified as a spammer, just drop me an email at treppenwitz AT gmail DOT com.  I just found out from TypePad that I can go in and fish your comment out of the spam filter and force it to publish. 

Not only will this solve the immediate problem of getting your valuable thoughts up there where everyone can see them... but I've been assured that this will also 'train' the spam filter to allow future comments from that person/IP address.

OK?  Still friends?

If all fails, Typekey works wonders. ;)
